Written by Antoin Ó Braoin, Rúnaí Contae
Handball and Wexford. Like hand and glove or foot and stocking they sort of belong together. Today at the famed Kilkenny venue Talbots Inch, the ‘Home of Handball’ was celebrating once more when the magnificent young players of Wexford contested and won three All Ireland 60×30 juvenile titles in terrific style. Anthony Butler, Ballyhogue Handball Club beat Kavan O’Keeffe, Waterford in boys under 15 singles, Holly Hynes, St. Mary’s Handball Club and Roisin Walsh, St. Josephs Handball Club joined forces to defeat Katie McCarthy and Laura Stack, Limerick in the girls under 16 doubles and then Keith Armstrong, Kilmyshall put the cream on a great day for Wexford by beating Jamie Kelly, Galway in the boys under 17 singles. It was a spectacular hat trick for our young players and it showed yet again the benefits of the enormous work done by the County Committee over recent years.
The medals were presented by GAA Handball President, Willie Roche, a native of Corish Park in Wexford and now living in Clare for many years.
An individual report on each match will follow on separate pages.
